Deloitte Launchpad launches third cohort of its Israeli accelerator program

Nine startups will be taking part in the program that will help them penetrate the U.S market

Deloitte Launchpad has announced that nine Israeli startups will take part in its third local cohort, where they will address three major challenges to help them penetrate the U.S market. This includes layering foundations for relocation and physical expansion, establishing a strong sales infrastructure, and funding support for their next rounds. The program, which started in 2020 in the middle of the pandemic, supports Israeli growth-stage companies and provides them access to Deloitte’s global network.
To date, Deloitte has accelerated 14 companies from its first two cohorts. These companies have raised more than $230 million, with notable rounds including Zero Networks and Digital Owl both raising a $20 million Series A and Cymbio raising a $20 million Series B. For the third cycle, companies were this time required to have a validated product, annual revenue of more than $500,000, positive year-over-year growth, and intention to move to the U.S.
